My wife and I enjoyed our 3 hour boat ride on lake Austin. Very nice lake, pretty nice marina and a comfortable pontoon boat( more than a couple really need) next time we are bringing friends!

Thanks to the guys at Blue Sky for an enjoyable morning on the lake!

The upgraded pontoon boat that they gave us had a fuel pump problem and the fastest we could go was 5 mph. If we tried to go faster it would just shut down after a few minutes. We immediately took it back to shore to ask about it and they said it was the fuel pump and they couldn't fix it and they didn't have another boat for us to use, but they would adjust my bill. The adjustment consisted of not charging me for the gas upfront of $75 (how much gas can you use if you can only go 5 mph?) and the upcharge fee of $15. Not much of a discount, since they gave me subpar equipment. We were all in from out of town and could not change our plans, so we did use the boat, but we didn't get what we paid for.

I love Lake Austin

I don't like the pontoon speed was very slow.

Rented a pontoon for 4 hrs. Got to the rental location early, but will admit, got confused finding the office belonging to Blue Sky, and went to 3 different offices. Person at the 1st office we went to said "this happens all the time". By the time we got to the Blue Sky office it was 9:50 (one other person in front of us) before we were served. Ran my CC for the taxes, had us sign the lease, and by the time they got us to our boat, it was 10:25 (this included an overview of the pontoon and it's operation, 4-5 mins tops). Returned from our trip with what we thought, 5 mins to spare. Pulling into the gas pumps, I heard my phone ring, didn't answer it as I didn't want to hit the dock. Went to pay for the gas, and they charged us a $40 late fee. I tried to explain we had 4 hrs. He was very sarcastic and said "I obviously didn't read my contract very well, and that I signed for a rental from 10-2", said it was company policy and that we got a "good deal" through Travelzoo. Guess not
